This full moon’s energy feel so powerful, it is much needed. Inhale calmness, exhale anxiety….Can you feel that?
I’m a essential worker and I’m on the frontlines. Each day the news get darker and darker but I really believe we will rise out of this pandemic. In 2008 my salary was cut almost in half, I had to build myself back up slowly but surely. It’s muscle memory to me, I know the grind, I know the pain, and I also know how it feel to come out of that pain. I’m not here to paint any b.s…I’m here to give you a little glimmer of hope, hell, I need it too, and together we all can lean on each other in these unpredictable times.
Happy Wednesday! Funny thing is, it was a foggy ride home this morning. Today I’m meditating on the word clarity. My favorite saying is, “If you test me I will fail every time.” This means, I’m not a mind reader. Be clear while communicating today, no one can read your mind. Clear communication saves time and energy and it saves headaches by both parties involved. Be truthful, be direct, less fog equals more productivity, more productivity means success, have a great day everyone.
Im always thinking of ways to serve, this is a topic I hold near and dear to my heart because I lived it. I can say without hesitation that I was a special needs child. For those who are new to my blog, I was born with a cleft lip and palate and was very tiny. Fast forward to my school years, I was bullied, laughed at because the way I looked and talked but I didn’t let that bring me down. I had the mindset of a lion, I wouldn’t give up, I was on a mission. During my school tenure in the 80s I don’t think the educational system knew how to help a special needs kid as myself. I was a extra shy kid so some of the educators took that as having a learning disability. Don’t get me wrong I had certain issues but it wasn’t extreme as some tried to make it. The common thread to my fearless mindset is my family, it really did take a village to positively navigate me through the ups and downs of my childhood. I was lucky to have my great grandparents, and grandparents to pour unconditional love into me and to teach me how to remain calm in certain situations, their life lesson were priceless. My parents were in their early 20s when I was born, I can only imagine the pain they endured taking me to the hospital for multiple surgeries or the many trips to the speech therapist, or the many notes sent home by my teachers explaining my difficulties with certain lessons. Thank God the world has evolved since my school days, there is more data out there to help special needs children plus parents can home school their child as well. As a parent you need to know that you are not alone in this journey, I’ve made it through, things got better as I grew older and my confidence grew. I graduated high school and I’ve been in the workforce for 30 consecutive years! I’m a living witness that it can be done! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, I really do appreciate you all.
